    I have never see any evidence that cold weather has had any effect on my planes over the years no matter how cold it gets. Just do not touch them and just leave then alone until spring. Even use to leave my NiCads in the plane but with LiPo they come out.

    -13C/8F here... garage is cold!! Just came back from a much needed vacation with 80F weather. Weird to think in less than a 24hr period I went from swimming in an ocean to shoveling snow in a parka. HA! Good thing I can crank the heater and work on projects!

    The worst for me was leaving 72 degrees in North Carolina many years ago and a few hours later having to push some idiots 280Z that was stuck in 6" of snow right behind my 4X4 at the St. Louis airport.

    I had some friends that left St. Louis flew to Colorado to go skiing, then flew straight to Cancun to go diving. They said they got some awfully strange looks with ski gear at the airport in Mexico.

    Same as northern aggressors moving here and bringing their snowmobiles. A blizzard here years ago and snowmobiles were front page news.
